my first cruise was when my kids were 4, 11 and 14. They enjoyed the kids programs on RCCL better than carnival.
Dinner We love cruising just for this. It gives us an opportunity for them to practice their perfect table manners. they all enjoy getting dolled up and getting waited on hand and foot. the wait staff is always excellent at taking care of the kids- remembering which rolls and drinks they want.. calling the boys formal names and little daughter- princess. It made them feel very special.
You may know this hint but it was a lifesaver with the littlest ones. If you put their weekly outfits together by day and place in a ziplock bag and label it ..it will be a lifesaver when you have 6 people in one of those little rooms and everyone is trying to get ready at the same time.
